After the joys of running a successful upholstery business, upholsterer Charlotte Cochrane was struck by an idea. Instead of reupholstering sometimes shoddily made sofas with dull designs, why not design and craft long-lasting pieces right here in Manchester? Why not harness local talent and beautiful British materials to make pieces of real quality and character, unlike anything else for sale? Made Below was born!
We design and handcraft small-batch furniture collections, using locally sourced materials and suppliers. We’ve got fabric from one of England’s oldest mills, wood from local FSC suppliers, and our legs are hand-turned in Manchester from UK-grown wood. You could say, we’re ‘hyper-local’ in our approach. This is all skilfully put together to create a truly unique piece of furniture.
We use beautiful British materials to make ottomans, benches, footstools and bay window seats. Our materials come from local suppliers and our furniture is crafted in our Manchester workshop.
All materials and components are sourced locally from the UK. Our sustainable timber is sourced from FSC suppliers and our legs are hand-turned from UK-grown wood, where possible. We’re proud to support our British textile industry and use wool from two of Yorkshire’s oldest mills, each with a heritage dating back hundreds of years.
